Riorden is the project of psychedelic-tinged singer-songwriter, Alexandra Riorden Dwight. An old Irish surname, Riorden means “royal poet” and lends an accurate description to her emphasis on metaphor and wordy, thought-provoking lyricsm. Born and raised in California, Riorden draws inspiration from the riffs and grit of 60s classic rock, raw vocal stylings of Woodstock-era folk, and unfiltered, stream-of-conciousness poetry of the beatniks. Riorden recently released her debut 5-song EP, titled Weirdflower, in March, 2019 and is currently working on producing her first full record.
